Fundação Angelica Goulart (formerly Fundação Xuxa Meneghel) (in English)

When Xuxa Meneghel decided to create a charitable foundation, she chose Angelica Goulart, educator and social worker, to fulfill her dream.

Out story began in October 1989, serving 180 children living in Pedra de Guaratiba (west of Rio de Janeiro). With a local start, over time the Foundation has become regional, national and international point of reference in the defense of the rights of children and teenagers.

In almost 28 years, more than 200 thousand cases have been part of our projects transforming the lives of young people and adults.

The influence of the institution extended by working in networks, creating its own methodologies and committing to legal advances in child protection (prohibition of physical and humiliating punishment, typification of crime for the sexual exploitation of children and teenagers). The recognition came in the form of awards, partnerships, patronage and requests for replication of developed social technologies.

Recently, Xuxa concluded that the organization already had the development needed and qualified personnel to continue autonomously.

In February 2018, the institution started to have a new name: Fundação Angelica Goulart.
The newly named Foundation follows the same original principles: to act in the best interest of children, teenagers and young people, to promote solidarity, to embrace partnerships, efforts, knowledge and initiatives. In addition to the Foundation’s history, we have a solid reason to honor Angelica Goulart’s legacy.

Currently, we are consolidating our new brand and we are in the phase of fundraising: financial contribution, technical partnerships, donation of services and materials. For the Projects to continue in 2018, we need the help of friends and partners. The care and the message that comes from the Foundation is vital and invaluable to all of us.
